Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows (Josh Olund BCIT Radio A&E)- Two new schools have had recentCOVID-19 exposures in the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows School District.
Highland Park elementary in Pitt Meadows and Laity View elementary in Maple Ridge had people with confirmed cases of COVID-19 at those schools on May 4, 5, and 6.
Fraser Health lists the terms for exposure events at schools, which may involve multiple cases on COVID-19. These two recent exposures raise it to nine schools in SD42 in the past two weeks.
Fraser Health has started contact tracing to identify individuals who need to self-isolate or self-monitor for any symptoms. Those households that do not receive a phone call or letter should still have students attend school. Those students who show any symptoms must stay home.
The school district also asks students and staff to do a daily health assessment, which is featured on the district’s website at www.sd42.ca.
